Sanders: 'Enough About The Emails, Let's Talk About Real Issues!' (VIDEO)

When Anderson Cooper asked about Hillary Clinton about her emails, Bernie Sanders smacked them all down.

Bernie Sanders hit the media hard on the faux Hillary Clinton email scandal, and he didn't hold back.

“Let me say something that may not be great politics, but the secretary is right -- and that is that the American people are sick and tired of hearing about the damn emails," Sanders thundered. "Enough of the emails, let's talk about the real issues facing the United States of America."

Huge applause, a partial standing ovation, and a handshake between the two.

Lincoln Chafee jumped in there, saying something about ethics, blahblahblah, and Cooper gave Hillary the opportunity to respond. Her answer? "No."

This whole debate is ten times better than any perceived strong moment in a GOP debate, and Sanders definitely hit a high note when he smacked Cooper and the rest of the email brigade down.


Via PoliticusUSA, more of the transcript:

Let me say something that may not be great politics, but I think the Secretary is right, and that is the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails, and let me say something else about the media as well. I go around the country and talk to a lot of people middle class in this country is collapsing, we have 27 million people living in poverty, we have trade policies that have cost us millions of decent jobs. The American people want to know if we are going to have a democracy or an oligarchy as a result of Citizens United. Enough of the emails, let’s talk about the real issues facing America.
